Yesterday I had the good fortune to stumble upon some great deals. I purchased three pairs of nice shoes. Allen Edmonds Strand in walnut, To Boot New York Capote's in black and a pair of Magnanni cap toes in burgandy. My issue is that I don't have the appropriate shoe care kit, complete with all of the colors I need to properly manicure these shoes, plus many more in my collection. Can anyone direct me to advice on how to build shoe care essentials? I need to be able to treat a variety of colors and textures. What advice do you have? Do I really need a different dauber and brush for every single color polish to prevent cross contamination? Do you guys really have 10 horsehair brushes?
The question is, if you were starting a shoe care kit today from scratch, what are the 10 items that you must have? And, how many of each?
The help is much appreciated.
